Welcome to the Roberti Community House!

Encouraging the best in ourselves, our neighbors, our community.

The Roberti Community House (RCH) is a 501(c)3 non profit organization located at 919 8th Street in Waukegan, Illinois. The RCH is intended to be a gathering place, a safe haven, where neighbors of all ages can come together to develop and share their skills and talents and celebrate their successes.

We started one of our earliest programs, the Junior Green Youth Farm, by knocking on doors, introducing ourselves to families in the neighborhood, and inviting their children to help us farm the raised beds at the back of the house. We’re still trying to differentiate the plants from the weeds, but we’re getting much better! Learning together, growing together and supporting one another form the cornerstones of the community house.

We are steadily evolving—joined by new partners, introducing new programs and expanding others. For instance, one cooking class has now increased to three and our after-school programming has expanded to two afternoons a week and has led to a lending library as well as a summer reading program.

A dedicated and creative group of volunteers facilitates all of our programs. Their enormous talents have been a major factor in our success. As a non-profit organization, our needs are many, and we rely on the generous support of volunteers and donors. We’d love to have you join us—please drop by the community house, see our programs, and meet our neighbors!

Today, the students and teachers at Thomas Jefferson Middle School’s greenhouse donated 14 pounds of bok choy to our Roberti Culinary Pathway program.

We are so grateful to partner with such an awesome program and to be able to use their donation to help give nutritional meals back to our community.

Today we learned how to make delicious tuna salads in two ways. Tuna is a cheap and very healthy protein. We substituted plain Greek yogurt for mayonnaise in one of them and we couldn’t even tell the difference! Nutritional knowledge is power. ... See MoreSee Less
